Disney has announced plans for a live-action film called Tink based on the character of Tinker Bell. Reese Witherspoon has signed on to star in the film and will co-produce with her production partner, Bruna Papandrea.
The script is being written by Victoria Strouse, who also wrote the script for the upcoming film Finding Dory, the sequel to Finding Nemo.
The plan for the film is to not to be an exact replica of Tinker Bell’s role in the Peter Pan story, but to tell Tinker Bell’s untold story and shed new light on her character.

Her Chicago-born husband, David, left the city for her, and they're now raising their three children (Jacob, Jonah and Lydia) just 12 miles from her hometown. As the Senior Editor of the DIS (wdwinfo.com), Leah spends a lot of time writing about, reading about, and discussing Disney. So, it should come as no surprise that one of her family's favorite ways to spend time is going to Walt Disney World and traveling on Disney Cruise Line. She also enjoys shopping, watching movies with her husband and doing crafts with and for her kids.
